Nobel Peace Prize 2021: Journalists Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov win for fight for freedom of expression



The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to journalists Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov for their fight for freedom of expression.

Ms Ressa is a leading reporter in the Philippines who co-founded Rappler, a news website that has focused “critical attention on the (President Rodrigo) Duterte regime’s controversial, murderous anti-drug campaign,” the Nobel committee said.

She and Rappler have also documented “how social media is being used to spread fake news, harass opponents and manipulate public discourse”.

Mr Muratov was one of the founders of the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta in 1993.
